Camp KK

Retired educator Kathy Brookshire organizes week-long ‘ camp ’ to show grandchildren love

Time passes quickly . And when grandchildren live out of town , it can be easy for grandparents to allow time to pass without making quality memories together . Former elementary teacher Kathy Brookshire recognized this not long after her first grandchildren – Clara and Sadie – were born and living in Ocean Springs on the Mississippi Gulf Coast .

But instead of just being sad or fretting about the geographic challenges , Brookshire found a solution : Camp KK .

Brookshire is excited that soon , her Starkville-based grandchildren , Wilson and Caroline , will be old enough to join in the fun , too . continued on page 9 www . meridianstar . com
